Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I've loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He's been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I've loved him through every girlfriend he's ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I've loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he's acted like I'm a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it's time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say...it's going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.

I have no idea where to start... this story was so good! I was captured by the Corps Security Series and now I'm enslaved by the Hope Town Series. If you are a fan of the Corps Security Series, you will love this book. Unexpected Fate is an intense, hot, emotional, and captivating love story that begins almost 20 years ago. The developing romance between Dani and Cohen is great. They have a chemistry that leaps off the page. And the sex scenes are intense, passionate and so HOT! Harper Sloan had me on a roller coaster of emotions. From the very first page, she gives her readers actually what they want and so much more. As long as Ms. Sloan writes awesome stories like the Corps Security and Hope Town Series, I will continue to read them.

I read the Corps Security bundle and it annoyed me how bad of a job those men did protecting their women. This book started off pretty good, but then went downhill fast. The two main characters have known eachother since basically birth and she loves him all along, he fights it, then finally gives in and takes her virginity. Then he is deployed for 7 months....comes back and their first night back together he goes for anal sex. Really? We are supposed to believe they are in love and I am guessing most soldiers come home and want love making not kink. Its like the author was trying too hard to make it a kinky book, when regular good old romance would have worked. I personally would rather read...we made love all night in between talking and laughing...to explaining every detail of ass play and grunts and you are mine....growl....and of course there was a stalker and hospital time by the heroine, because this group spends time in the hospital. There was no rape though like the previous books in the series so that is a plus. Not worth the $3.99. If you really want to read their story wait until it goes on sale.

I love Harper Sloan's Corps Security series...my favorite was Axel, so when this book came out about his daughter, Dani I just had to read it. Throw in Cage's son Cohen and it had to be a hit! It was just that a big hit. All my favorite characters were back as one be happy family. Cohen stole my heart when he was running around in his cape...it was so fun to see him grown up...and just like his dad! I loved Axel so much in this book...I was just cracking up! If you loved the Corps Security series you will totally love this book! I can't wait for more.

Loved getting to read the stories of the Corps Security kids. It was great to meet all the kids and see some more of their parents. Looking forward to reading more of Hope Town series. Cohen and Dani's story was a great start. It was full of plenty of love, romance and humor.

First half of the book I couldn't put it down! Then Cohen comes home from deployment and the quality of the story just didn't seem to be as good.

Amazing! Unexpected Fate is the first book in the Hope Town series and it is Cohen and Dani's story. Cohen Cage and Dani Reid grew up together as friends. They always loved each other as more than friends, but Cohen was afraid of what would happen if they became a couple. Until one night he changes his mind and decides he can't live without Dani. Their time together is short because Cohen is being shipped overseas. They try their best to deal with the distance that separates them, but some things are happening in Hope Town that put Dani in danger and Cohen has a hard time being away from Dani. And something unexpected happens that will change their lifes forever. I loved Unexpected Fate! The story is amazing and flawlessly written. It hooked me from the beginning with its drama, laughter, angst, mystery and hot scenes. Dani and Cohen's story takes us in a rollercoater ride of emotions that you will not want to miss. I loved Cohen when he was little and now I love him even more! He grew up to be a younger version of his father: he is a total alpha male that will make you swoon. He is HOT!!! He is possessive and protective but also very sweet. Dani is her parents daughter: she is strong, fierce and stubborn, but also very caring, sweet and kind. She is the perfect mixture of Izzy and Axel. I loved to meet the new characters and catch up with the Corps Security gang. Izzy, Axel, Melissa and Greg are great parents and did an amazing job raising their children (although there was a scene in Unexpected Fate that I wanted to slap Axel). Once again, Harper Sloan delivers a fantastic book with an amazing story and awesome characters. Her writting style hooks the reader from the first page and keeps him begging for more. Can't wait to read the other kids stories!

Confession: I haven't read the series. Now it is at the top of my MUST READ list. I knew Harper was an amazing author but this story has me hooked, ready to read every word she's written. Already sent the **SOS** to my book friends that this must be read ASAP, because it is THAT GOOD.

Cohen Cage and Dani Reed have known each other their whole lives and finally one night it comes to a head. Dani has loved Cohen ever since she can remember and finally tells Cohen how she feels which brings to life every fantasy she has had about him the night before he leaves for the military. Harper Sloan started a spin-off series starting with Cohen and Dani. These two have to overcome Axel, Cohen leaving for the military, and other hurdles to get their happily ever after. We also get more Sway and who wouldn't want that! The only thing I would like to know is what and why is there a TV show being filmed in Sways shop. How did that come about. Other than that I enjoyed the book and cannot wait for more Hope Town!

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin Stars Cohen Cage is all grown up and he is the perfect alpha male for Harper Sloan's Unexpected Fate. When I heard we were going to get a glimpse into the grown up life of the cape-wearing-ninja-slaying Cohen, I literally did the happy dance in my living room.  Did the story live up to my expectations? Did Harper Sloan hit another home run? Am I a happy camper? The answer is unequivocally...no and ifs or buts about it...YES! Throughout the story the author creates, we are thrust back into the lives of Corps Security guys and their feisty women.  Yes, it is Cohen and Danielle's story, but it is so much more.  We are brought up to date on how Axel and Izzy and the gang are faring as their children have become adults.  Needless to say, Axel is having a time letting go of his little girl.  No one is good enough for his little princess, Dani. Dani has always loved Cohen.  She can't remember a time that he wasn't the center of her world.  He might not reciprocate her feelings, but she won't let that deter her.  She is going to marry him one day. Cohen has viewed Dani-girl as a family member.  She is younger than him and his best friend is her brother.  When she declared her feelings for him, he shrugged them off as a teenage infatuation.  Now that she has graduated college and is venturing out into the world he sees her as the woman she always wanted him too.  Cohen realizes this a few weeks before his deployment that could potentially be years before he returns and doesn't want her wanting for him. This story is full of family, friends, love and passion.  It was as if I was visiting old friends.  Another great addition to Harper Sloan's stories and my library!

I love and adore Harper Sloan.  She has inter-tangled her series’ together but not so much that you HAVE to read them all. (But trust me you want to.)  I couldn’t stop turning pages. The she throws a curve ball into the mix and wow…just wow.  I would read the phone book if Harper wrote it.  I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

Dani has been in Love with Cohen since she was young. Cohen had feeling for Dani but with their age difference he backed off never taking that route. Years go by and Dani is tired of fighting it and she lays all out to him. When deployment is around the corner Cohen can't leave again and not show Dani what she means to him. while he is gone, Dani gets a stalker and events happen that to keep her safe The Whole Gang comes together to protect her while Cohen is overseas. Trouble is very close by and the changes of events that happen threatens the happiness that Dani and Cohen finally found. this is a Must read and I so recommend this book and all of Harper Sloans books.
